Video: Recycle your old tower PCs into media-ripping monsters2017 has been a busy year. We did a deep dive into network attached storage, continued our ever-popular 3D Printing Discovery Series, and even premiered our first article in the Drone and Robotics Discovery Series. On top of all that, my wife, puppy, and I evacuated Florida ahead of Hurricane Irma and moved to the Pacific Northwest. I'm still unpacking.
Yeah, so that was a bummer. I don't know about you, but with all the hype over the past year -- especially about Apple's health-related hires -- I expected, I don't know, something...innovative. Instead, we got Jony Ive talking about watch bands. Now, I'm sure that Apple is proud of its watch band design, but I have to tell you (as the son of a New York jeweler) that the watch industry has done watch bands.
Video: Will internet providers keep pace with IoT explosion? Time to think about meshYesterday, I published an article based on analysis of an FCC proposal document and the Code of Federal Regulations. I concluded in that article that the FCC's proposed changes to internet governance were not a threat to our fundamental internet freedoms.
First shot at winter proofing a 3D print. Some old blankets make a prototype enclosure, and there’s printing going on inside. Using Baby Monitor app and old iPhone for vid feed. So far it’s working. https://t.co/dugmezAIRf
@patricknorton A good bench-mounted or heavy vice. Chisels and files are useful, depending on their age. A favorite set of _your_ pliers or a screwdriver. I still cherish pliers from my dad, and a screwdriver from my grandfather, he gave me when I was 8 or 9.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
